I am going to try making some today, since I scored some semi-green tomatoes at the store. The problem is I've never eaten them, so I'm not sure what they should taste like.
I plan to use a buttermilk wash and dredge in 1/2 flour, 1/2 corn meal, s&p..then fry in evoo.

Does this sound right?

I have never tried the buttermilk wash, but the rest of it is pretty traditional.

I also like to fry them with sliced okra and yellow squash

wouldnt use evoo, smokepoint is too low, heres how I do them;
dredge in flour, dip in egg/milk mix, then dredge again in 1/2 flour, 1/2 cornmeal, fry in veg oil til crispy. they should be tart, and crust should be crunchy, one of the faves at our house!

Get around that olive oil smoke point by just putting in a pat of butter.

know that, its the actual taste of the olive oil in this dish....... its a bit intrusive on the tart tomatoes, and crust wont crisp as nicely....... have tried all types of oils over the years, peanut is actually best for frying. too many years in too many chef's kitchens.

You need to make sure the tomatoes are green. I have fried some that were just turning a little and they were not as good.

Yep, they have to be all the way green. I dip in an an egg mix, then flour, salt and pepper each side, cook in canola.

Thanks, all. Maybe I'll do the egg wash and regular oil instead.
